  • Issue: Resignation of Bob Bamford, Interim National Coordinator and NE/NC CC Rep
  • Date: 22 Dec 1998
The Advisory Board of The USGenWeb Project met in emergency session on Monday, December 21, 1998, at 7:00 PM (CST). Bob Bamford, Acting National Coordinator has submitted his resignation:
 
"Genealogy is a hobby, we all enjoy the research, the contacts, the comradery and the thrill of the search. All of us, as part of that hobby, volunteer in various genealogical and historical organizations, to both further our knowledge of the hobby and make a contribution to its furtherance. It can be fun and rewarding but unlike the work we do to gain our livelihood it provides no remuneration save that of having made a contribution.
 
"When this volunteerism reaches a point that it is no longer rewarding, no longer provides satisfaction, but instead becomes a burden, it is time to dissassociate yourself from those organizations that no longer provide any benefit.
 
"I therefore submit my, unequivocal, resignation from all positions in the National USGenWeb organization, effective immediately, and direct said organization to immediately remove my name and e-mail address from all national pages. I will be unsubbing from all national mailing lists, immediately upon confirmation that this message has been received."
  • Motion #98-16: I move that the resignation of Bob Bamford be regretfully accepted.
